Hi all,

Selling my old Nakamichi TP1200 head unit. The original plan was to use this in my 90's project car, but plans have changed as they do. Sorry for listing it in 2-Channel classifieds but I have heard of people using these in their home audio setups as well as in cars which is why I thought someone here might show interest.

Top of the range high quality automotive head unit with separate pre-amplifier unit. If you're not familiar with it please have a quick Google - these are one of the few ways to have home-grade HiFi equipment in your car from the pinnacle of Nakamichi.

This is a Japanese unit so please keep that in mind with the available FM frequency ranges. 

I hooked it all up to bench test and all functions work as they should. I tested all inputs/outputs/faders/balance/tone controls. Things to note in regards to the condition:

- Fader knob (surrounds volume knob) is sitting loosely, it still works as it should

- RCA outer contacts are missing from two RCA jacks on the pre-amp. This is for the connection to the head unit to transmit the AUX1/AUX2 jacks up front if needed (there is also an AUX2 input on the pre-amp and you can switch between them). The video showing the test is using the front AUX input plugged into the RCA inputs missing the outer contacts - no discernable sound change or issues with them missing as they would ground to the head unit.

These photos and video were taken within the last week:

Had this unit for several years, connected at different times to McIntosh, Sony XES, DLS and Alpine F1 amps as well as DLS/Audison thesis speakers. Incredible sound quality!!

Good luck with the sale

      Item Condition: Excellent condition Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Kent Town State: SA Payment Method: Bank Transfer, Cash on pick up, PayPal for Friends Reason for selling: Gooing to a different brand This is one of the very good working Metaxas amplifiers, 2 x 50W, with huge reserves of power and wide soundstage. I have purchased this amplifier from another Stereonet member about two years ago having known the amp from another friend who would not sell his for anything in the world! Since I have purchased mine, I have used it on a daily basis in my office and never had a single issue with it. From the previous owner I know that it was been upgraded by Metaxas to make it bulletproof. With my Yamaha C2a preamp, this amplifier demonstrate great transparency and sounds apart from the vintage transistor amplifiers by its neutrality. This particular one is in great shape, the on all sides with minimum signs of wear.
